    This guy is absolutely awesome. This isn't the first time I've listened to him.

      Yeah Bubba, Jocko's sense of stoicism and realism and a voice for calm and critical thinking tempered with empathy is highly needed right now.

        Well, bucky, I do have some reservations about some of his thoughts, but, then I also have some reservations about Trump too! LOL!

        There are times when trying to have a sane conversation just "ain't" gonna work. It's those instances where force becomes necessary to defend oneself.

        Wasn't that Reagan that said, "Peace through power!"?
        Basically, until the bad guys FINALLY understand that you WILL NOT tolerate their bad behavior, will they ever acquiesce.
        Even at that point, they WILL continue behind the scenes.

          I agree Bubba, and I don't agree with Jocko on everything. I mean I think a couple of weeks earlier before all this he was talking about giving LEO's back the right to use Choke holds, and to me, that makes me believe that he thinks the capabilities of the avg. LEO are greater than what they are.

          Given what he's said and agreeing with Jordan Peterson, I think he agrees with the statement that you have to have the ability to control a situation and that includes thru force. I don't have a problem with using force on actual rioters. I have a problem with force and especially excessive force being used on protesters and demonstrators.

            I think LEO's SHOULD be taught to use a choke hold.
            Problem is, you've got to get a liberal town council to understand "s#¡t happens"!
            Some cop shootings don't end with a fatality! S#¡t happens!

              How about dye bags that would open when removed from the store ? Or when glass is broken and motion detectors sense people going in and out of window sprinklers go off with colored water ? Identify the looters and round them up after.

                Not sure I have enough forgiveness in me to recognize a looter or rioter intent on stealing, burning or destructing my city, residence or any loved one, or even myself, with very much compassion. I am afraid a lifetime of training, skills, attitude, and mental conditioning would direct my trigger finger to do what it does.

                        I don't think 99 is who he purports to be, I think he/she is a troll. Tell him and bubba to stay off my posts. They hijack and divert a post. They can go and make their own posts.

                          That kind of mindset is what is going to get ex-officer Chauvin (the kneeling cop) an introduction to the joy of bustin' rocks.
                          You remind me of a quotation from a great article on training for concealed carry licenses.

                          "At class, it was hard to discern the line between preparing for something awful to happen and praying for something awful to happen. A desire to carry a gun seemed to precede the fear of crime, the fear serving to justify the carrying."

                            Oh boo-hoo you big baby!
                            You sound like a second grader.
                            BOO-HOO! You hurt my feelers! I'm gonna tattle!

                            ...and THEN!... You have the gall to post on MY thread! What a hypocrite!
